Subject Leader - Mrs Chen & Miss Kirby

Our Geography curriculum is designed to be inspiring and give the children a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences whilst ensuring that key concepts and knowledge are covered effectively. Key skills are developed over the years through a programme of revisiting and building on current knowledge. Topics are linked to other areas of the curriculum to ensure that practice reinforces new concepts and learning is purposeful. Fieldwork opportunities exist in every year, some of which are specific to Geography and some of which allow for cross-curricular links and these enable the children to become independent geographers. Specific vocabulary is introduced in a coherent manner and we ensure sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning are taught. Real context links to topics are used so that there is a clear purpose for learning.
